Erica Kotick was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Pittsburgh, with a dual major in Psychology and Anthropology. Next, she earned a master’s degree in Education with a School Counselor certification. After earning her master’s degree, Erica was aware that she wanted to focus her mental health training in order to more closely support individuals and families as they navigate through the barriers of family members who seek mental health care for their children.
Erica first carried out this desire by working as an in-home therapist. For the past three years, Erica has worked at a school-based partial hospital program in inner-city Pittsburgh. Erica has her License in Professional Counseling (LPC) from the state of Pennsylvania and specializes in working with children and adolescents with complex trauma and mood disorders. Erica’s license will transfer in Montana to an LCPC level.
Erica and her husband are achieving their goal of moving to Bozeman to experience Big Sky outdoor living. They are an active couple and love hiking, backpacking, kayaking, fishing, and hunting. Erica is an animal lover as well, having a German Shepherd and three turtles.
Erica strives to continue to make meaningful therapeutic connections with individuals and families in the Gallatin Valley to encourage insight and lasting change in ways that help family members grow and improve their relationships. Erica is very excited to join Providence Mental Health in creating a new community resource that will supply family-focused mental health support for the entire community.
